Bro they are dating big time.” Mary said emphasizing on each word. Segun thought within himself for some seconds.
“since when have they been dating?” he asked.
“About a week ago. Exactly a week after Nike came here.” Mary explained.
“Oh! Thanks.” He said.
“Bro do you know what made you loose out on Jummy?” Mary asked.
“No.” he replied.
“Your anger and believe. You so much believe in yourself that you think you know what is good for you.” Mary said.
“Am i the one you are talking to in that manner?” he asked angrily.
“Am sorry o.” she replied.
“Mary, are you mad?” he asked advancing towards her. Mary stood still and didn’t utter a word because she knew what will happen if she tried running away or talk. “Mary, i don’t want you to interfere in anything about me. Okay?” he said.
“yes.” she replied.
“Now get out.” he commanded. Mary looked at him for the last time and left his room.
“Am i the one that made those girls to break up with you? You are now transferring your agression on me. Mtchew.” she said and hissed loudly.
Segun layed down back on his bed and reminiscied over the events of the day.
“Nike is now back with Emmanuel, Jummy is now dating Wale. At last am the looser.” he thought.
He went back into wonderland a few minutes later and had a dream. In his dream he saw a beautiful girl whom he fell in love with a first sight. He tried asking her out.
“Segun, before i can go into a relationship with you. You need to work on one thing.” the beautiful girl said.
“What are they?” he asked.
“Your anger, and your pride.” she replied.
“I promise to work on them immediately.” he said and woke up from his slumber.
“Segun, take this and get me fuel for the generator.” his father said handing a one thousand naira note to him. He stood up washed his face and went to the filling station accross the street. The time was 7pm. He kept on thinking about his dream.
